Mobile internet ban lifted in Assam

Prime News, National, Telecom, Guwahati, December 20:- Mobile internet services resumed in Assam on Friday, ten days after it was snapped in the wake of violent protests over the new citizenship law.

A senior official of private telecom operator Airtel said the ban was lifted from 9 am on Friday.

“As we did not receive any fresh order to continue with the blackout, we have lifted the ban from 9 am,” he said.

The state government had said that mobile internet services in the state would be restored from Friday though the Gauhati High Court had ordered restoration of the service by 5 pm on Thursday. Broadband services have already resumed in Assam. (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
